Michelle Hainer is a freelance writer and editor whose work has appeared in numerous national publications. A former teen magazine editor, Michelle’s covered everything from pregnancy to peer pressure, but these days she writes mainly on the subjects she is most passionate about: parenting (she has two children, from whom she draws loads of inspiration), cooking (she loves finding new ways to make her favorite meals healthier), and, of course, eating (she’s never met a potato or a piece of dark chocolate she didn’t like).
